"My grandparents, Erik and Brita Grønevik, were born in the mid 1830's and lived on a place called 'Grønnevik'. It was a small place set aside by the big farm of Vik for them as long as they lived; then it was returned to the owners. It was just a few stony acres, enough to feed one cow. My grandfather was a handyman: stonemason, butcher and brewer among other things." -- History of my mother's side of the family, Ragnvald Vick (1965.)7
